Just some stuff

Steve and I have been having fun lately. It's decided to stop raining for a little bit and it's been gorgeous, mid to high seventies. But, it's been cool enough to start baking, so I've starting my official baking season. I've decided to not buy any bread from the store all winter. You can see what I do in Carolyn's Cooking Corner to the right. I'm basically really excited.

This past weekend Steve and I went to Dallas and walked around Southwestern Medical Center. It's his top choice for residency, so we wanted to see what it looked like. It's huge! We've definitely gotten used to our little school. This is a picture of Steve at the campus.

We had five student couples move into our ward this past summer, and we've had fun getting to know them. Yesterday we played games at the Gibson's house. It was great fun. Also, Steve is substituting for seminary this week. He's teaching the Isaiah chapters and is loving it, except for getting up at 5:30. He now has a little more respect for his mom who has worked with seminary for years.

A Little Bit of Heaven

Here in Texas we can't decide if it's actually Autumn. I'm sure my friends living in Pennsylvania in Utah are in the full swing, but we can't get the hang of it. One day it's in the 60's the next, meaning today, is in the 90's. But don't worry, the air conditioning at my work makes up for the differentiation, it runs at about 65 degrees constantly. So, no matter if it's hot an humid or windy and chilly I always need a sweater and blanket. But, we received a little bit of heaven today that I don't think we would have received it the weather acted like the seasons prescribed. I found this flying about our lantanas

It flew around for about 5 minutes. It was amazing. I saw it when I came home from work and watched for a little bit. Then, I ran inside to grab my camera. I was amazed that it was still there. For whatever reason it just hung around for a little bit. It was the most perfect creature I've ever seen. Call me a little sappy, but it was really something.
